They have pretty good, balanced, definitely not lacking by *my standards*, bass, but for bassheads V-Moda is probably a better option.
So here I am having to eat back most of my words...... Andrew, I have no idea what was wrong.
The cushions can only be inserted one way, they were firmly seated, I removed just some of the cotton wool but not all. The port holes weren't blocked by anything and all the screws were tight, It just seems that it was waiting for me to complain. I listened for about 4 hours last night and to be honest, the bass just came on like a switch compared to just before I posted my first impression. To be honest the DT235 still has deeper bass, but now at least in bass light recordings are listenable because the bass is present enough and is now more present than before.
I really don't know what happened but it went from I cant listen to the police greatest hits because the recording is bass light compared to Sting's later stuff to hey I can listen to this, it can do with a bit more bass but I know its the recording and not the headphone. It still lacks the extension of the DT235 but it now sounds more complete.
as I said I am not a bass head per say, but how it was before was really dismal in the bass. Now it is fine. So I will re-evaluate my impressions at a later date.
